Sorbus aria Magnifica

Magnifica, Whitebeam

The clusters of creamy white flowers appear in April and May, followed by bright orange-red fruit in the autumn time, when the leaves turn a golden brown before falling. Interestingly this tree loses its leaves much later than Sorbus aria Lutescens, so if planting an avenue it is a good idea to mix Lutescens and Magnifica to get the best from these two trees.
